State, federal agencies study Yukon water quality

Here's a press release from the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation about an effort to assess water quality and habitat along 550 miles of the Yukon River.

This seems like important stuff considering the weak returns of not only king salmon this season, but reportedly fall chum as well.

Thanks, Board Blog.

Those boats are gillnetters I saw in a yard along the Kenai River this past weekend.

The Upper Cook Inlet salmon fishery is wrapping up, so guys are pulling their boats for the season.

I'm still very much a student photographer. What can I say? I get lucky sometimes.

Thanks for visiting Deckboss.
